Joie de Vivre is my favorite place in Breaux Bridge. A nice place to sit and enjoy some peace and quiet while having a cup of cafe au lait. The mochas are divine too. Joie hosts a Cajun jam session every Saturday from 11 to 1. The jam, and the red beans and rice, are not to be missed. Bring your instrument!

What a great way to start my Saturday. The musicians were amazing, sharing their talent with each other and this of us who just "play the radio". All ages and faces…it was a lovely morning!

A very atmospheric place where rather informal band performs regularly - the band is a very loose informal group of musicians who just seem to turn up at random and play just for the joy of it. Food and drink are good, but take secod place to the music.

After a strenuous morning of dancing to amazing Zydeco music at Cafe des Amis, I wandered over to Joie de Vivre for a lite lunch before an afternoon of kayaking on BEAUTIFUL Bayou Teche. Much to my surprise, there was a 25 person Cajun music jam session going on, wonderful dancers, one of whom asked little ole me to dance and the best, freshest, original Red Beans and Rice SANS sausage!!! OMG! I took a little doggie bag to go and it helped me get my best time for 8 miles on the bayou yet!!! Sit in this beautiful building with many lovely items for purchase and soak it in on a Saturday morning! Enjoy!

Drove from Texas-Alabama and took a chance stopping here for coffee. Lovely interiors, very cozy. Loved the cornbread and veggie chili, the latte, and most of all the charming hostess/owner.
